Our Wisconsin Lapbook, more or less

Here’s what we’ve done for Wisconsin:

So, as you can guess from the random assortment, this is what my library had on Wisconsin. 

top- summary of what they remember of the Little House books and picture of one of their houses.
Superman’s memory: There was a brick house and it didn’t went down.  The Daddy sang songs and fight deers.  He shoot deers.  And they had two sons and the Mommy and the Daddy.  And then they lived happily ever after.  Then they didn’t have any lunch, was the farm picture.  Then their Daddy went in a tree to shoot the deer, and that’s all I will tell you.  THE END

Princess: There was a brick house and they lived.  And their Daddy was singing songs and the fire was on and and and and and and and their Mom was holding the baby.  They lived happily ever after.

Batman: They didn’t eat deer meat.  I don’t know.  I only know about one thing.  I don’t know what else.

Can you tell they got progressively less interested in this?  And Superman had help from his brother and sister.

Underneath it was a picture of Superman rolling out the pizza dough.  Here’s how to make pizza from scratch according to Superman: “Make it flat.  Then we roll it.  Put on the crust and then cook it.  Put on the sauce.  Yes we need cheese, so put on cheese.  Eat it.”  In case you can’t tell it took a lot of prompting to get him to say even that.  He was just going to cook it and eat it.  We also tried to make ice cream, but that didn’t turn out so well.

Oh, and next to the Little House picture is information about the state animal, the badger.

Bottom our postcards from Treyton and Alexa at Refined Metals Academy.

And for those of you who want the printables, here they are:

Hmmm, I’m messing with the size of it as it embeds, obviously I don’t quite have it down.  Something to fiddle with more.
For today, I am linking this up to Debbie’s awesome geography/history linky over at Children Grow, Children Explore, Children Learn and then I’m hopping over to Homeschool Creations to link this up for their preschool corner/5k too, because I’m not going to get a week review written, but I thought this was something other preschoolers might want to try with their little guys.

Oh, and as a final note, if you want to see our Wisconsin tab in general it has a bunch of stuff from when we visited Wisconsin, including a visit to the Cheese Factory.

And one other thing, because it’s that type of morning, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for CSN stores.

  1. The review of Little House made me giggle. I wonder what Anna will say. We keep reading them, and her favorite so far was Going West. She wanted me to read that one over and over. Now we have Winter Days in the Woods, and she likes it as well. She was indifferent to Deer in the Woods.
